Frequently asked questions
What did you study in college?I qualified as a Sports Scientist from Technological University Dublin - Tallaght campus. The course includes modules such as Sports Coaching, nutrition, strength and conditioning and psychology.
What made you write a book?Childhood obesity is a ticking time-bomb in Irish society according to a recent study. And 89% of adolescents in Ireland have not mastered fundamental movement skills which they should have learned by the age of six. The result is that a health catastrophe is waiting to happen and this in turn may lead to a significant increase in our healthcare budget. "Fitness Fun for The Young" is an attempt to remedy that situation with chapters on diet, sleep and even suggestions for a wet day workout when kids can't play outside.
Do your classes only focus on one sport?No, we at the kids coach focus on coaching your child fundamental movements and a variety of sports such as soccer, basketball and our national sports Gaelic football and hurling which hold a very important place in our culture in Ireland. We emphasise the idea of participating in many sports as it is proven that specializing in only one sport as a child can lead to chronic injuries in the future. Another factor to consider is the likelihood of boredom as a result of sticking to the one sport.
